2/24/73 is a grand exception. I'd love to see the whole tour upgraded but especially 2/24.
Though I stand by saying any show with a Wave That Flag is a top tier show.

Only thing I noticed is I must break up the tour with a show from other eras here and there or I find myself getting tempted to skip a tune here and there,
I never thought of Eyes in that way because I like to listen to the harmonies on that one and Phil and Donna and Weir and of course Garcia are in the mix.
I think the most consist tune of this era might be Big River and of corse seeing where the jam tunes are going
Each night is always a blast.
Just finished 6/10 RFK and to me that is one of those,
What more could I ask for shows!
I am starting to be able to call tunes with just a note or two which gave me immense pleasure in the 80’s

I've enjoyed the Spring 73 shows this year, all I have left are 3/28 and 3/31. I flooded my ears in 68, 69, and 70 for two months and didn't get much Mexicali Dead in there. As for Eyes, it's fun hearing it being worked out but all my favorites seem to fall in 74: 6/16, 6/18, 7/19, 8/6, and 10/19. I may be an odd one but 7/19 might be my favorite of the year, because of its nifty entrance and little intro jam before the verse. They'd just perfected those gear shifts and they're so damn impressive.

Once I get into those four West Coast Summer Shows post RFK
Those are shows that I never had on tape
Skipping tunes hits me hard in the later years for whatever reason I just can’t listen to Throwing Stones which pretty much takes out the Bobby climax for many a night.
The other issue for me is the atonal stuff in 1974
I am gonna be hard pressed to take that in with the entire show as much as I admire the big part that Ned’s Seastones has in shaping the Grateful Dead’s drums~>space return in 1977/78 until now.
if I did venture to see Dead & Co I suspect it would be Drums and space which would most get me off.
Actually Drums itself is not atonal so it is probably that transition into space that tends to blow out the pipes.
More power to anyone still out on the road
but my Grateful Dead fix now
is almost always a soundboard
and currently pre-Brent.
Dig your listening strategy!!!

Flowing, one of great offerings of '74 for me will always be those Eyes with their transitions from Louisville in June, Roosevelt Stadium in August, and Winterland in October. The clunks got worked out!

A big thank you to anyone who gave a ride to the disheveled long hair guy who was always going further than you were.
Does anyone know what Box of Rain is about?

And as SDH says
